Anger by Frederick Buechner

“Of the seven deadly sins, anger is probably the most fun. To lick your wounds, to smack your lips over grievances long past,to roll over your tongue the prospect of bitter confrontations still to come, to savor to the LAST toothsome morsel both the pain you are given and the pain you are giving back- in many way it is a feast fit for a king. The chief drawback is that what you are wolfing down is yourself. The skeleton at the feast is you.” From Wishful Thinking and Beyond Words.

I love that quote. I am so susceptible to sitting down at the feast of anger and self- righteousness. My 2nd favorite Buechner quote, and it belongs with my 1st: “Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Dont be afraid”.
